Monday, March 2, 2009, a sheriff and an Allen Park police office were having lunch at Tim’s Coney Island in Allen Park. They were sitting in the far back corner during the busy lunch period. They heard a loud pop over their head. They both jumped up and began to yell “Everyone out now! Everyone get out!” Within 20 seconds the ceiling of half the restaurant came crashing down. Because of the quick action and heroic efforts of these two police officers, nobody was hurt. People said that is sounded like a machine gun as the nails flew out of the ceiling while it came down. Ten years ago, before the current owners purchased it, the building had been renovated. The contractor that did the work did not install the ceiling properly. After time, the ceiling, which consisted of plaster and duct work, was just too heavy to withstand the weight.
 
M.J. White & Son, Inc. was called out by the insurance agency to help control the chaos. Channels 2, 4 and 7 were all there trying to get in and see what had happened. We immediately dispatched our carpenter crew to secure the fallen ceiling. Our Contents Division began to clean up the debris while electricians and HVAC specialists started their work. The insurance adjuster authorized us to continue the repairs on the restaurant to help keep the cost of business interruption down.
